Wow! With awesome stuff like this being donated, I might set my own apartment on fire.@WBaker, would any of this be useful to you?

I think most of these are spring/ summer shirts, but you know, spring/ summer will come around.
I'm slightly smaller than you. I normally wear a size XS or S. The shirts I got from Parker are a little too large for me, so they might work for a true medium. I would say the others fit me well and could work for someone between a small and medium.
- Short-sleeved seersucker shirt from Uniqlo x Lemaire, size L (this is actually something I got from Parker)
- Short-sleeved Margiela shirt with arabesque print, size 15.5)
- Long-sleeved Brooks Brothers Black Fleece leaf-print shirt, size BB2 (also something I got from Parker)
- Long-sleeved Spier & Mackay oxford button-down, size 16.5

I normally wear a size 30 for pants, so I struggled to find something that would work. I can dig through my closet again, but one option is Stan Ray pants (new and unworn). Stan Ray is a workwear manufacturer based in Texas. Both of these pants are all cotton and labeled a size 32.
I think they actually work better for someone who's a size 30, but my first experience with Stan Ray was actually a size 30 pant, which ran a little too small. However, it stretched out comfortably in the waist after one or two hours. I think these can work for a true size 32. The leg is roomy-ish compared to slim-fit clothing nowadays, but I think works well in workwear outfits (I know that's not your bag, but I couldn't find any pants in my wardrobe that I thought stylistically could work and is in your size).
The pants still have labels on them (that's the white tag you see above), but they can be cut off.

Again, I normally wear a size XS or S, but these might work for you? Some options:
- Melinda Gloss wool-alpaca cardigan, size L (again, something I got from Parker, so comes with approval from one of the best-dressed guys on here)
- Stephan Schneider heavy cotton cardigan with hood, size 3
- Inis Meain chunky textured knit, size S (but slightly roomy and could work for someone between a size small and medium)
- Black 3sixteen cotton thermal, size M

Here's a fit pic of Kyle in the same Schenider cardigan. I don't think it's really a winter piece, but more of a fall/ spring piece for transitional weather. I also thought maybe it would be a comfy thing to wear in your new home, layered over a t-shirt as Kyle has above. Sort of like a shawl collar cardigan for a guy who likes Margiela, Geller, and Schneider. Maybe something you can also wear around the neighborhood.

The chunky Inis Meain sweater is more of a winter layering garment, I think. The 3sixteen thermal can also be a baselayer. It's a bit too big for me, but I think for someone who's a true size medium, it would fit like the picture above. I know workwear isn't your thing, but I thought maybe it could be useful for winter.

These are not fancy or covetable by any means, but I thought maybe they would be useful. Just basics: Anonymous Ism marled cotton socks and some textured, white Uniqlo t-shirts. The t-shirts have a slight waffle texture. Everything here is still in its original packaging and completely unworn.
The t-shirts are a size small, but they're a slightly oversized, boxy fit. Kind of like a skater tee. Again, I know that's not really your bag, but thought maybe these are things you can wear at home. The socks are one size fits all and should go with any outfit.

And how about some things to keep you warm for winter? I have three scarves here and a pair of Red Wing gloves. The scarves are unworn. In the photo above, going from burgundy to tan, they're ordered on levels of softness. I think all three are soft, but the burgundy is much softer than the tan. I can't remember the size of the gloves, but they're basically unworn. The leather is a heavier workwear style and unlined.

"Hello Pen Friends"
I know we both share an interest in fountain pens. This stuff will not keep you warm, but I figured maybe it can occupy your mind while you're at home. I'm happy to send along a Lamy 2000 and a Rhodia dot pad. I would offer ink, but since I may be shipping clothes to you, I thought maybe that would be a bad idea. However, if you're not taking any clothes, I'd be happy to take a photo of some ink I have here and send that along. The Lamy 2000 is in perfect working condition. I may also have the original case here somewhere, if that's important to you.
Great stuff @dieworkwear and everyone else!
